Agreed, this whole repeat question thing is getting annoying. Also, it's always the same Users doing this, even though they were told to stop.
Yup. Pretty much.

It's quite hard to do that actually. Often the questions are asked with different wording so it's impossible to determine the other question is a similar one.

For this question that you asked, I doubt there are even any similar questions that could have been shown there. But I'll see if there is any way to improve the results for questions to counter the duplication.
